I would like to encourage you to go to Kalioppe's blog and take a look because it raises a very important question. It inspired me to think some more about goals and success and how to make them happen.

I ended up having breakfast at about 10:30 am. I had a nice fritata with zucchini, peppers and mushrooms.
I was able to get in a little jogging with the dogs but did not have quite my normal energy level for running yet. I had a few macadamia ... Read more
The scales were at 128 lbs. today, my lowest weight since I was 14. Amazingly there is still a significant amount of body fat left on my belly and my butt, LOL.

I did go swimming this morning, didn't swim as much as I wanted to, only 750 yards, because I continued having trouble with my goggles. I also went for 2 walks, on with my daughter on horseback, one with some of the dogs.
I only ate lunch at 4... Read more
I realized this morning that including yesterday I have 18 days until my next body scan.
The good news is that I'm in ketosis as of this morning, it only took 36 hours, and my weight is down 2 lbs. which of course is partly water weight. I'm ... Read more
Last night I had two lovely ripe pears with yogurt as my dinner. They were sweet and yummy, like all our homegrown fruit that I have enjoyed lately: watermelon, apples and plums. They also had more sugar than what my formerly sugar-addicted body... Read more
I had been trying for well over a year to improve my swimming at least to the level where I can use it as my cardio. I tried some private lessons which helped my technique somewhat. But I did not make swimming a regular occurrence in my life. Pa... Read more
